    Course Descriptions Note: The information that you will find under “Resources” is simply a list of commonly used items. Everyone studies differently, so talk to your big buddy, L2s in your house, or people in the classes ahead of you that you trust and figure out what is best for you.

    Gross and Developmental Anatomy Richard Whitworth, Ph.D., Co-Course Director Office #6230, Medical Education Building; Email: [email protected] Lisa Campeau, M.D., Co-Course Director Office #6138, Medical Education Building; Email: [email protected] Gross Anatomy This course is divided into four blocks with a lecture-based exam and lab practical exam following each block. It will be combined with information taught in Developmental Anatomy. Block 1: Back and Thorax Block 2: Head and Neck Block 3: Abdomen and Pelvis Block 4: Upper and Lower Extremity

  • 7|P a g e

    Your cadaver is your first patient so treat them with respect. Keep your tank and the area under and around your tank clean, especially before practical exams. You must wet, cover, and lower your specimen into the tank, no exceptions. Everyone wears scrubs to lab, and a sweatshirt might come in handy to accommodate the low temperature inside the lab. You can also borrow scrubs from your big buddy or buy them from any medical uniform store. Resources for Gross Anatomy Lecture & Lab: An atlas the best resource for Anatomy, it is very important to have one available when you study for the course or read the dissector in preparation for lab. Also, use your bone boxes and skull boxes because they will be tagged during the practical exams and are great study tools. Atlases of Anatomy, a brief description of each:

    • Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank H. Netter. This is a classic atlas. Most of Dr. Swartz’s and Dr. Whitworth’s powerpoints use illustrations from Netter’s Atlas. This atlas focuses on relationships which are heavily tested on both the lecture and practical exam and many of the illustrations are generously labeled.

    • Atlas of Anatomy (Thieme Anatomy) by Anne Gilroy, et al. This atlas is newer than Netter’s, and Dr. Mussel uses pictures from Gilroy’s atlas in their powerpoints. The illustrations are drawn with a lot more detail and have fewer labels. This atlas also organizes information in charts, which is helpful for those who like to compartmentalize information. This atlas is available in the laboratory for each tank.

    • Grant's Atlas of Anatomy by Anne M.R. Agur PhD and Arthur F. Dalley PhD. This atlas corresponds with the illustrations in the lab manual and was used by many students in lab. Grant’s Atlas is very good at teaching the layers of the human body. It also has a “Blue Box” feature, which discussions Clinical Correlations often tested on exams.

    • Color Atlas of Anatomy: A Photographic Study of the Human Body by Johannes W. Rohen, et al. This atlas has actual photographs from cadaveric specimens. It is helpful when studying for the lab practical exam, especially when the lab is closed the day before the exam.

    Grant’s Dissector by Patrick Tank is the lab manual used in Anatomy lab. Usually, 2 Dissectors and 1 Atlas per tank are left by previous classes for your use in lab. On the first day of lab make sure to bring a copy of the dissector for the tank. You can split the cost with your tank mates. Most students have a personal copy of Grant’s Dissector to study from at home. Moore & Dalley’s Clinically Oriented Anatomy. This is the required textbook for the course. Some students read the text book cover-to-cover and some used it only as a reference. It has virtually everything you need to know in it, including Clinical Correlations which are often tested on exams. This textbook is written more like a narrative, which is helpful because the lectures can seem fragmented at times. Board Review Series (BRS) Anatomy. This is a high yield book that is short and easy to read. It has good practice questions for the exams.

    Developmental Anatomy

    This portion of the course covers developmental anatomy and will be combined with information taught in Gross Anatomy. Resources for Developmental Anatomy Lecture & Lab: The Developing Human, Clinically Oriented Embryology by Moore and Persaud. This is the required textbook for the course. However, many students found the powerpoints and notesets to be sufficient study materials. High Yield: Embryology. This book is much shorter than the textbook and gives only high yield information. Many students used this as a reference instead of using the textbook. There will be handouts from each Developmental Lab and are full of high yield information from the instructors. Biochemistry David Worthylake, Ph.D., Course Director Office #7152, Medical Education Buidling; Email: [email protected] Medical Biochemistry is designed to be a general survey of biochemistry and, therefore, will probably not be as exhaustive as some undergraduate courses. The course is divided into four block exams, the easiest of which is the first. Blocks two, three, and four tend to be more challenging, with the second block often cited as the most difficult block exam in biochemistry (Note: The hardest blocks for both anatomy and biochemistry are given at the same time. So try very hard to not fall behind this block). While the course exams may seem challenging, they are an extremely good representation of the final exam, which is National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) Subject Exam for Biochemistry, composed of retired Step 1 Biochemistry questions. Resources for Medical Biochemistry: Lippincott’s Illustrated Reviews: Biochemistry. This is the required textbook for the course. The course PowerPoint’s generally follow the chapters very well, and it is an excellent resource for the class. CSI 100: Clinical Skills Integration

    Robin English, M.D., Course Director Office #618, Lions Building; Email: [email protected] Course Description: CSI begins to build your foundation in clinical medicine, examining the patient-doctor relationship, communication skills, medical ethics, and diagnostic skills. The course consists of Clinical Forums, Skills Labs, DxR Cases with pre and post-case discussions, and a weeklong Preceptorship in Primary Care. You will have some obligation with CSI usually twice a week in the afternoons depending on your small group or house schedule You receive a grade for this course at the end of the school year from Clinical Forum evaluations, peer evaluations, skills lab quizzes, and DxR and exam grades. Resources for CSI: Bates’ Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking will help you with DxR cases and learning to take histories and perform physical exams. The Medical Interview and Resolving Ethical Dilemmas are both required texts for Clinical Forum. You will also receive a Clinical Forum Guide at the beginning of the year. Cases for discussion during forums will be in this booklet. Most other material required for CSI will be available online on Moodle.

    Class Information The Notetaking Service (NTS): If you choose to work for NTS, you get your notes for free. If you do not want to work for NTS but still want the notes, the cost is $250. The number of lectures you will be responsible for will vary based on the number of students who sign up to work for NTS. You can also choose to purchase Old Notes (the previous class’ notes) for $100. Because there is an approximate 3 day turn-around between when the lecture was given and when you get the notes, some students find Old Notes useful for studying in between. Cut-Outs: Cutouts are test questions that have been “cut out” of old exams. You can find these electronically by asking older students or by purchasing a hard copy from the Asian Pacific-American Medical Student Association (APAMSA). Many students find these helpful in providing insight to exam structure and for identifying areas of weakness. They are NOT a substitute for studying lecture material. They are usually sold for $30. Mock Practicals: About a week before your Anatomy and Histology practical exams, there will be a mock practical exam which you take to test your knowledge. We highly suggest taking these mock practicals so you can address your weaknesses before the actual exam. The L2s will put together the first mock anatomy practical and then your class officers will put together the last two.

    Test Taking: All exams are given on your school-issued computer with a specific time allotted for each test. All lecture exams have a multiple-choice format. The practical lab exams for Gross and Developmental Anatomy are given inside the lab with a fill in-the-blank-format. The practical lab exam for Histology is given on the computer with a fill-in-the-blank format. Students are required to bring their personal school-issued laptops, internet cable, and laptop charger on exam day to use for testing. Make sure your computer is working properly before the test by running the laptop check provided by Computing Services and your password is up to date. Grading: The grading system recognizes four levels of achievement: honors, high pass, pass, and fail. The grading scale is NOT the same for each course. Refer to the class syllabus for the grading scale. Students who have received one or more failing grades are reviewed by the Pre-Clinical Sciences Promotions Committee made up of course directors from the first and second year courses. Every possible consideration is given to each student reviewed by the Promotions Committee, and any extenuating circumstances that might have caused the student’s sub-par performance are weighed before the final recommendation is made as to whether the student will be allowed to retake the class. You will be contacted by Student Affairs if you are in this position and they will help you from there.

    Student Life Interest Groups Student Interest Groups are a great way to find a community and learn a little more about a field you are interested in. Most of the groups meet a few times of semester and serve to give you the connections with other students and faculty in areas you are interested in. Some interest groups have a small yearly fee which includes lunch during meetings. Active student groups will have a representative available at the Activities Fair during Orientation for you to ask questions and to sign up for their mailing list to be kept informed of meetings throughout the year. Most groups will offer a free lunch at their first meeting of the year to give students an opportunity to come learn more about what the interest group will have to offer during the upcoming year. See “The Scoop” for contact information for each student interest group. LSUHSC Wellness Center/On-campus Gym The Wellness Center is located on the 3rd floor for of Stanislaus Hall and is open Monday-Saturday excluding holidays. Upon your first visit, you must register for access, and admission is free thereafter. In addition to cardiovascular and weight equipment, the Wellness Center offers various group exercise classes such as Indoor Cycling, Power Pump, Yoga, and Pilates. For more details please visit: http://www.lsuhsc.edu/no/administration/Wellness/ Class Positions There are several class positions available for those who wish to be involved as a part of Student Government in planning and executing class affairs. These include Class President, Vice President of Social Affairs, Vice President of Community Service, Technology Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. Officer elections take place in

    September after the first block of exams. A passing grade on all portions of the first exam must be achieved in order to run for class office. Intramural Sports Intramural activities are played with other LSUHSC Schools and Tulane School of medicine. Teams are formed amongst classmates and past intramurals have included Flag Football, Basketball, and Softball. Service Learning Elective (CSE & PDE): The mission of the Student Learning Elective is to establish an elective program for medical students that will give transcript credit to students who are involved in community service and professional development activities throughout their years of medical school. If you earn the required credits, you will get special recognition in your Dean’s letter that is sent to Residency Programs.

    There are two types of SLE credit – Community Service Elective (CSE) and Professional Development Elective (PDE).

    • CSE activities include service to the community, such as Camp Tiger, student-run homeless clinics, and CORE-sponsored activities.

    • PDE activities include tutoring, giving tours, being a class officer or interest group officer, and a number of other activities.

    • It is important to note that this is NOT required to graduate. SLE merely highlights the efforts of those students who are involved in our community and school.
